The Best Whale Watching in Sydney

At Whale Watching Sydney we have been watching Humpback Whales off our beautiful coastline since 1993, so we know the great feeling that people get
seeing these whales up close and personal.

Our experienced crew is looking forward to welcome you aboard Sydneys best custom built, fast and spacious
vessels to give you the best day possible out at sea. It's an unforgettable experience!

From mid May to early December tens of thousands of Humpback Whales migrate along the coast off Sydney each year.

Your cruise begins with all of Sydney Harbours famous sights such as the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge,
Watsons Bay and many more as we make our way towards the entrance of Sydney Harbour.

Then we head to the blue waters of the pacific ocean where we witness these magnificent mammals migrate past
Sydney's famous beaches and rugged cliff lines in the biggest mass migration in the world.
